Re: thyroid and high cholesterol
I'm not familiar at all with the reference intervals or norms for cholesterol testing in the UK. But I can tell you that my LDL cholesterol dropped by 17%, from high to within normal range, after I was optimally treated for low thyroid and without any other lifestyle changes. It can take a few months to happen, but it should eventually.
Low thyroid is the second leading cause of elevated cholesterol after poor diet.
